"This course explained to and gave me words as to why I like certain things and not others."

Even though I went to art school and I've been shooting for years, often when I'm looking through a viewfinder in a camera something will feel right or wrong, but I don't know why. This course explained it to me and gave me words as to why I like certain things and not others.

"It changed the way I approach any image, even for Instagram."

It changed the way I approach any image, even for Instagram. It made me want to apply design principles to my photography in my own way. By knowing these rules, I can follow them however I want.

The content in this course started off strong, and just got stronger and stronger. It is filled with beautifully complex yet practical information. It is so good and so very helpful. I can't wait to start implementing so much of it.

FAQ
What if I'm not a photographer?

The course focuses on over 40 of the most relevant principles of design and is taught using a range of captivating, everyday images. We're confident the content will be inspiring to not only photographers but anyone with an interest in visual creation, such as interior designers, bloggers, stylists, florists, hobbyists, or avid Instagrammers.

FAQ
Does the course cover photography skills?

The course is based on the most relevant elements of visual composition, all of which make for better imagery. The course does not, however, focus on the technical aspects of photography such as aperture, ISO, lenses, film, etc. We highly recommend the workshops offered by Jose Villa, Erich McVey, and Jonathan Canlas if you'd like to learn more in depth on those kinds of topics.

FAQ
I've been a photographer for years (or I'm already a professional artist). Would I still benefit from the course?

The course content has been guided and reviewed by very experienced professional photographers and an expert from Harvard with a masters in art education who found the content valuable for their own learning. Very seasoned photographers, stylists, even some who teach, have trained with Joy and found it beneficial. This content can affirm your existing practices as well as offer new insights in how to advance your skills.

FAQ
What sort of results can I expect?

There are immediate and long-term results that you can expect with this course. In the short-term, you will be able to identify the principles of composition that make up great images. You'll be able to use these skills to quickly gauge where your images, portfolio, and Instagram feed can be improved. In the long term, you will be able to apply these principles more readily and subconsciously to your own work; gaining confidence in the designs and images you create, increasing your chances of getting published and garnering more likes on social media.
